I finally finished these notebooks I've been working on! They're perfect bound with Elmer's glue on the spine. Pretty simple and durable, so far as I can tell. I needed a new "What We Ate" book for my boyfriend and I when we go out to eat on special occasions. We like to remember each meal we've had and any yummy food we've eaten. The smaller notebook is for me to record all of the books I've read. It's something I've always done since I was young and it just helps me keep track of books and authors. I've been reading like crazy and so I wanted to start up a new book. I like how they turned out so hopefully I'll make some more!
